is what it could mean and insist we will get off the road to greece. >> i don't doubt that 72% want to see the spending cuts. which way do you think the public sentiment swings if there is a government shutdown? >> i think that pat toomey is confused. it's a continuing resolution. if they don't fund the continuing resolution, the government will shut down. if they don't lift the debt ceiling, the economy shuts down. not only the u.s. dme, maybe the world economy, and the consequences are drastic. bottom line on this, michael, and you know this, nobody should be threatening or rattling sabers, everyone, president obama, harry reid, everyone knows we need significant spending cuts. it's about time be act maturely, find out the spending cuts we need to make are done in the least onerous way. we also need to raise more revenue. the fiscal cliff raised 600 billion in revenue. we need to raise another $600 billion in revenue and need to find a way to dos that as well. >> do you agree with that sentiment? constantly hear from people who say the spending is out of control and if this is spun as re
there is no single answer. and quite frankly, we don't even know whether some of the things people think impact on this actually impact on it or not. and so i want you to know you have not been, quote, singled out for help. >> over the past two weeks, the vice president's team has met with dozens of organizations and groups from around the country from a wide range of interests. the law enforcement community, the medical community, the child advocacy at risk youth groups have been involved, domestic violence and prevention community was in there, also legal justice and service organizations, religious groups and organization, education leaders, the mental health community, gun owners and sportsmen were included, gun safety advocates, technology experts. the vice president is taking recommendations from all groups. there is common ground on this issue from all sides. for instance, even nra members overwhelmingly support changes to background check laws. 74% want everyone purchasing a gun permit to undergo a background check with no loopholes. this is from republicans pollster frank luntz, and wa
of alabama. no, i'm dead serious. i'm not really that shocked. >> you don't want to end up like brent musburger. >> no, it's the opposite of brent musburger, and i'm dead serious. if you go to ole miss, if you go to the university of alabama, if you go to auburn, even. i guess you yankees aren't used to -- >> we don't have that in the north. >> no, i'm dead serious. i mean, you look -- you know what? seriously, i looked at that picture and said, she's pretty. and you know what she looks like? she looks like a lot of other really pretty sorority girls at university of alabama or ole miss or auburn or i don't know. do you guys have them up at swanee? >> absolutely. >> i mean sororities. >> yeah. >> do you have sororities? >> absolutely. >> it's just not all that. get over it, move on. >> he doesn't get out a lot. >> you've got a dynasty. >> this is a different kind of s.e.c. dynasty. >> yeah. but we're used to it. we're used to it. >> this is not going to go on for nine minutes. >> you know what is going to go on for nine minutes, though? seriously, seriously, aig. >> aig. >> you know,
of the commonsense things that everybody fwraes with, including nra members and gun owners, you don't hear any republicans at all talking about coming to the table, and when rush limbaugh made the comment about, you know, it won't be long before you hear moderate republicans talking about how this is hurting them with women, actually you don't hear any moderate republicans saying that. you know, unless some republicans come to the table in the house, it is frightening how little we might be able to do on gun safety. >> bill, let me interject. there are four suburban republican congress mn in the philadelphia area. i wrote an op ed piece for one of our newspapers, and i challenged them to stand up and say are they for us, their constituents, or for the nra? they're going to have to vote. they're going to have to declare themselves. if they declare themselves on the side of the nra, they're finished. they will be defeated in 2014. >> the question is whether or not you can build a coalition big enough of the very small number that is moderate republicans to even get a bill to the floor in the hou
can't nail him, if there's just suspicion, i don't think you should dock him, obviously. >> no. there's a cloud around everybody. we do have to figure out what to do. now you've got the all-time home run king, all-time hit king, a guy who won seven cy youngs in roger clemens will probably never be in the hall of fame. a guy like mark mcgwire. >> put it on the plaque. put it on the plaque. >> no, no plaque. no nothing because they aren't. >> the steroids era. >> there you go. >> first of all, that would be the biggest construction project in the history of cooperstown. >> true. good point. >> because the game was replete with steroids for a period of perhaps as many as 20 years. but certainly for 10 to 15 years. just put it on the plaque with bonds and clemens. here's what happened with them. here's what they admitted. here's what they were charged with. whatever. put it on the plaque. >> you know what my problem is, though? and maybe this is personal with me. i was born in atlanta, georgia. i grew up, hank aaron was my idol. hank aaron was a remarkable man, decent, humble, mobile, ala
try to take our firearms. >> i personally don't think there's any need for that kind of weaponry. >> enough is enough. >> enough is enough. >> when it can happen to children in a classroom, it's time to say -- >> enough. >>> enough. one word from former congresswoman gabrielle giffords today as she and her husband launch a campaign to combat gun violence in this country. the move comes as bells tolled in tucson marking the second anniversary of a shooting that killed six people and left the congresswoman critically wounded. it comes as victims and their families relive more gut-wrenching testimony at the preliminary hearing for the gunman charged in the colorado movie theater massacre. and it comes after giffords and her husband, mark kelly, traveled to newtown, connecticut, to meet with families of the victims of last month's elementary school massacre in which 20 children and 6 teachers were shot and killed. >> first couple that we spoke to, dad took out his cell phone and showed us a picture of his daughter, and i just about lost it. >> enough. >> in a usa today op-ed, they wr
with that fact, will you? it's his job to defend this country. and he's done a pretty good job of doing it, don't you think? well, the commander in chief said today he wants a former vietnam enlisted guy to be his secretary of defense, a guy who can't walk through an airport metal detector and not get reminded of the shrapnel he took in that sad but heroic american war. the president wants chuck hagel in that post because he thinks like him and has proven he's got the brains to protect this country. hagel long ago proved he's got the heart. don't you think? i don't hate the people trying to stop the president from picking this guy for the job he needs done at the pentagon, but i do recognize their tactics. they're the same ones they used to push the war in iraq. they say they don't like something he said hagel did 14 years ago about a gay man being put up for ambassador. i don't like it either, but, a, it was 14 years ago, and, b, i don't think it's got anything to do with why the hawks are opposing him. since when is the right wing of this country is caring for gay rights? as bill clinton woul
. you know, colorado is a big hunting state. and i don't think anyone that i have ever met that is a responsible gun owner can side with these, you know, for lack of a better word, these loony tunes who are out here because they're doing something different. they're stockpiling. they're getting assault rifles. these are not normal gun owners. what you're hearing from now is the absolute fringe, and, unfortunately, they're being allowed to speak for the pro-second amendment crowd. >> david, we're going to show the worst of the worst in a minute, but first your thoughts. will the regular gun owners, the people that are in the nra in pennsylvania and they vote, democrat or republican, are they going to go with the crazies like james yeager? we're going to show him and alex jones again. >> you know what's crucial to this is what clinton did back in '94. remember, he got an assault weapons ban through congress over the nra opposition and opposition to many republicans and some democrats, and the way he got it was by bringing the cops, the police -- >> but how many seats did he l
in washington who personally don't like chuck hagel. they may actually like him personally but he rubbed some people the wrong way in the course of doing politics in d.c. what do you think is going on here with someone like senator mccain says one thing six years ago and another thing today. people like lindsey graham bring up the word "israel" an awful lot. what's at the core of the opposition? >> i think some of those substantive issues do concern him? . john and joe are right. chuck hagel has distanced himself from the republican party in a real and significant way. he essentially voiced support in 2008 for then senator obama's campaign for the presidency. traveled with him offer seas and really worked to squash concerns raised by mccain at the time and some of the fringe of the republican party barack obama was unfit, unqualified and maybe not even an american. this confirmation hearing will be important. it's obvious even some democrats want to hear answers from senator hagel on a variety of issues. have confidence he will be confirmed unless one of these senators steps forward and says
that are being filled. and why don't you name -- and it's not just gender. but it's the exact moment in one's career and timing. >> it does go without saying that if this were a republican president, it could be a national outrage. >> all right. so let's dive in bring in the thursday morning power pow, joanne reed, democratic strategic chris delfinos. >> the other other cabinet members staying, eric holderer and other one that decided to say on, ray lahood. ruth marcus we had on the show yesterday, to ask whether or not president obama needs a binderful of women. maybe tongue in cheek. she writes about the white guys. what a shame, not an outrage, but a shame. the face of power that president obama has chosen to present to the country is strikele second for the african-american president at the top of the pyramid for its retro look. white and mail. it's "mad men" goes to washington. they've posted a picture that goes viral. all men in the oval office. in fact, if you look really are closely. we will circle the leg of valerie jarrett. you'll find her in that picture. however, she's behind th
hunted. you know, colorado is a big hunting state. and i don't think anyone that i have ever met that is a responsible gun owner can side with these, you know, for lack of a better word, these loony tunes who are out here because they're doing something different. they're stockpiling. they're getting assault rifles. these are not normal gun owners. what you're hearing from now is the absolute fringe, and, unfortunately, they're being allowed to speak for the pro-second amendment crowd. >> david, we're going to show the worst of the worst in a minute, but first your thoughts. will the regular gun owners, the people that are in the nra in pennsylvania and they vote, democrat or republican, are they going to go with the crazies like james yeager? we're going to show him and alex jones again. >> you know what's crucial to this is what clinton did back in '94. remember, he got an assault weapons ban through congress over the nra opposition and opposition to many republicans and some democrats, and the way he got it was by bringing the cops, the police -- >> but how many seats did he l
don't want them here, alluding to those who might benefit from the d.r.e.a.m. act. so republicans have their own pr campaign to conduct with latinos on immigration reform, but how is the president going to combat republicans who want to see a more piece meal approach as we move forward here? >> reporter: i think we've seen the way the president has handled other recent challenges from his republican opposition when you consider just the fiscal cliff hanger as it were with campaign stops in various parts of the country. consider a statistic that i think a lot of americans are going to refocus on is the immigration conversation returns to the fore. it's the fact that the president won 70% of the hispanic vote in this past election. a dramatic -- dramatic element in his success and obviously the republican party recognizes it's harsh language, some rhetoric used by mitt romney and other republicans around the country didn't help its chance of gaining support within that community. john boehner, the speaker of the house, has said that they need to have a more practical, a more pragmatic ap
dealt with at once. deal with the weapons that you think you need to deal with. but if you don't deal with mental health issues, you don't deal with substance abuse issues, and you don't deal with violence in the video games in the media, if you don't deal with all of it, you're not going to eliminate the problem, or even reduce the problem, in my view. >> chris christie was rightly praised for his leadership in the aftermath of hurricane sandy. no doubt about it, he stood up to his party for their actions and how they didn't do what they were supposed to do early on to get relief from congress. but now is the time for real leadership, passing the buck on to the entertainment industry, governor, is nothing but a cop-out. it's a great way to divert attention from a politically delicate situation and difficult position. >> i don't let games like call of duty in my house for ps3 and xbox. that's a decision mary pat and i have made. you cannot tell me sitting in the basement for hours playing call of duty and killing people over and over and over again does not desensitize that child to t
people. >> i don't quite understand why everybody would be afraid. >> it has been enough. >> the nra, which wants to be feared and respected, is not respected and should no longer be feared. >> i agree with wane lapierre, you, sir, are [ bleep ] in the head. ♪ >> another hectic day in washington and just ahead we'll have more on the president's cabinet reshuffle, including the nomination of jack lew to lead the treasury department. but, first, it is target tuesday. that's the day when vice president joe biden says he'll present his recommendations on preventing gun violence to the president. biden made the announcement as he met with hunting groups and gun advocates, including the nra. and he said a con shen sus is emerging over proposals such as expanding background checks and banning high-capacity magazines. >> you all know this is a complicated issue. there's no singular solution. but there's also things we know. we know that there are certain actions we take that have diminished, have diminished the extent of the gun violence that otherwise would be occurring in the united stat
event, you have a diplomatic illness. >> why don't we apply the same standards to school kids. i want to see a doctor's note. >> yeah, i've been doing a lot of work on that. she is the first reported case and it's a very, very severe one. >> very, very severe. what's the medical report on that? >> classy, right? questioning if she was really sick. getting mocked after a serious head injury. but, on the same day she gets back to work, we have a new challenge for the right. we're embarking on chuck hagel's nomination for secretary of defense, a former senator praised by republicans. so what will the knee jerk reaction be to this? i'm going to say optimistic and hope they'll do the right thing. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> hagel for defense chief. let's play "hardball." >> good evening. let me start tonight with president obama. this country's commander in chief. start with that fact, will you? he's done a pretty good job of doing it, don't you think? well, the commander in chief said today he wants a former veelt nam enlisted guy to be his
basic freedoms. >> wow, shed blood to stop gun safety. i don't think so. we're not going to let the voices of violence and extremism get in the way of this debate, not this time. >> i'm telling you that if that happens it is going to spark a civil war and i'll be glad to fire the first shot. i am not letting my country be ruled by a dictator. i'm not letting anybody take my guns, if it goes an inch further, i'll start killing people. >> start killing people? i mean this is vile, this is ugly stuff. they are in full freakout mode. but we are serious people wanting real change, the threats are all behind us now. people behind newtown, connecticut, to chicago, illinois, are standing up and saying no. this time is different, this time we wouldn't back down. this time we're not going to let the threats stand in the way of progress and protecting our kids. with me now, e.j.deon, "the washington post" contributor. this week he wrote about people getting on board with gun control. and melissa harris-perry, joining me. >> good to be with you, and melissa. >> what are you looking at, we'r
will not negotiate over whether to raise the debt limit. why don't you believe him? >> well, i don't believe him for sort of practical reasons and partly for the history of his negotiating style. the practical reason is we have a couple of things coming up that he is clearly going to negotiate over, one of which is the sequester, the automatic spending cuts that they delayed for two months when they did the fiscal cliff deal. that is going to expire late february and early march. it is hard for them to say we are going to negotiate but don't call it a debt ceiling negotiation. we'll just call it a sequester negotiation. i think that is a difference without a distinction. i think what the president demonstrated in the end of the fiscal cliff negotiation and a couple of previous negotiations is he is a guy who wants a deal even when he is holding all the cards as he was in the fiscal cliff negotiation. he is not a guy who wants to tempt fate. he doesn't like chaos. he wants to get a deal. he wants both sides leaving the table thinking they got something. he wants to prove that washington can work.
shutdown? >> i helped close the government twice. i think that is a dead loser. >> hopefully we don't get to that point. >> a place for politics. >> well, i got 98% of what i wanted. i'm pretty happy. >> the republican party losing streak continued today as a new poll shows that republicans also lost in the public perception of the fiscal cliff negotiations. "the was post" shows that 30% approve the way house speaker john boehner handled fiscal cliff negotiations, 56% don't approve, 53% approve the way president obama handled negotiations. 40% disapprove. today, chris christie continued his campaign against house republicans. >> we look forward to what we hope will be quick congressional action on a full, clean, sandy-aid bill now. now, next week, one thing i hope that everybody in america now clearly understands, new jersey, both republicans and democrats will never stand silent when our citizens are being shortchanged. >> and let's not forget what governor chris christie said last week. >> there is only one group to blame for the continued suffering of these innocent victims. the house
we looked at the audience. we said, we don't have an audience program. we're growing the audience pretty rapidly. we were the hadding a little under 1 million page views at that time. >> in those days, success was measured by the number of eyeballs on your site. back then the numbers were good. with behind sooigt, however, silas said there was another problem people didn't recognize. >> people are going to reading.com and getting their news and going away. >> today, that kind of engagement isn't good enough to grow a website. silas said he needs customers to be loyal to the site, to be ambassadors, spreading the word, even business bodies sharing their views. >> hey, there's value in people commenting. all of those are strong indicators of now we're getting that. >> engagement is considered the key to growth. but how does a small low-tech bit get people to interact and be engaged? >> we're using policing words with the word engagement. we want to look at a more holistic view of the consumer interacts. >> gabe, the ceo of dopamine knows a lot be engages customers. he said people wi
's beyond the mainstream or something we don't know about yet. >> it could be one or the other. that's why the confirmation hearings are going to be vitally important. right now as you said at the top of the show, both sides, the pro-hagel people and anti-hagel people are engaged in a bit of a campaign to sort of set of narrative for who this person could be as secretary of defense. before he sits before the confirmation hearings and answer questions, tough questions from democrats and republicans alike, on all of these issues from his support of israel to his criticisms of the iraq war, the afghanistan war, the -- his unwillingness to sign that letter designating hamas as a terrorist organization, these are all questions he's going to have to answer and how he answers them could very well determine whether he's confirmed or not. >> well, he started to answer them a little bit. he did an interview with his hometown paper and said record is being distorted. i didn't sign on to certain resolutions in letters because they were counter productive and didn't solve a problem. if he's going to de
if there are delays, if there are problems, we don't really have a fallback option so we are down to a few critical paths for supporting the station, and so, the complementary nature between the commercial programs and the conservation program i felt was one of its strengths. the lack of a clear rationale for human exploration beyond the international space station is another serious problem. the administration's approach of being capability driven while it has a certain logic to it also has a lot of vulnerability. and historically i think a more strictly geopolitical approach such as i've talked about the close cold war approach for leading the international cooperation what in fact be a better approach for the united states. there are others that one could take that simply talking about the capabilities absent a strategic rationale that's integrated with other international u.s. interests i think is a very flout path as we are seeing today. >> thank you my time is expired. >> the gentleman from minnesota michigan, mr. clark. >> thank you mr. chair to get funding for nasa is important but especial
. i don't think so. we're not going to let the forces of violence and extremism get in the way of this debate. not this time. >> i'm telling you, if that happens, it's going to spark a civil war and i'll be glad to fire the first shot. i am not letting this country be ruled by a dictator. if it goes one inch further, i'm going to start killing people. >> i mean, this is vile. this is ugly stuff. they are in full freakout mode. we're serious, people, wanting real change. the tricks, the threats, it's all behind us now. people from newtown, connecticut to chicago, illinois are standing up and saying no more. this time it's different. this time we won't back down. this time, we're not going to let the threats stand in the way of progress and protecting our kids. with me now, washington post columnist and msnbc contributor, this week, he wrote about the need for republicans to get on board with gun control. and melissa harris perry host here on msnbc. thank you both for joining me tonight. >> good to be with you. >> e.j., what are you hearing about what the administration is lookin
in congress just don't get it. boehner is vowing to stop direct talks with president obama in the future. and let me introduce you to this fella that he's got with him now. he's tom cotton. a newbie congressman from arkansas. today, he unvailed his big, new ideas. >> i think that the congress, as a whole, may be able to say no to barack obama a little bit more. >> genius. say hello to the president. what could possibly go wrong? good plan, mr. colt ton. . >> i don't think what washington needs is more compromise. i think what washington needs is more common sense and more principle. >> yeah, sure. why compromise? washington is working so well without it. let's just keep doing what we're doing. i mean, why on earth would a republican want to compromise you? what good can compromise do for a politician. now, let's be clear. chris christie is a conservative republican. i disagree with them on issue after issue. but on some things, he's showing a willingness to compromise and from the public's reaction, you can tell that's what citizens want. and we also just had a little thing called an ele
with this administration. first of all, on what would make a difference. we don't think that a ban on so-called assault weapons, which hasn't worked in the past, is going to work this time. >> do you have the support in congress to block any federal ban on assault weapons in the coming year? >> i do not think there is going to be a ban on so-called assault weapons passed by the congress. >> even as yesterday's white house meeting was occurring, a high school in rural central california was in lockdown after a student opened fire with a shotgun in a science classroom, wounding one student and leaving three others with minor injuries. another school shooting doesn't change the difficult politics of this issue. though biden's meeting came with a photo op. >> as an owner of shotguns, as a guy, i'm no great hunter, mostly skeet shooting for me. >> both the nra meeting and an evening meeting with the entertainment representatives pictured here were closed. during his movie, "django unchained" quentin tarantino with movies like "pulp fiction" refused to answer the question about the possibility of violent ima
, happy sixth birthday, iphone. you don't look a day over 4s. >> good morning. it's friday, january 11th. can you believe it's friday? >> well, it's a wonderful day. friday's always great when it's on a friday. >> welcome to "morning joe." with us on set, we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle. i thought you were going to try and get out early. >> i was. >> yeah? >> i was. but here i am. the good news never ends. >> i'm not sure how that happened. usually you just leave. msnbc political an vis and vice president and executive editor of msnbc.com, richard wolffe is with us. hello, richard. >> good morning. >> how are you? and we have the chairman of deutsche incorporated. >> now you perked up. now it just happened. >> are you serious? really? did you just say that? >> there was a whole body language thing that happened. or it was just some bad tacos from last night. >> right. it was definitely not body language for you, donny. oh, my god! wow! wow! >> great stuff. >> have you seen -- just+++1dt >> what's the latest on his knee? >> well, it was a major operation. it was a reconstruction o
be very qualified and excellent public servants who don't want to go through the process and have their lives and records dragged through, so it's really unfortunate. >> heather, if you look at the legacy for the gop in terms of this being their playbook, which is to say obstruct, obstruct, obstruct, it doesn't seem to be a very good long game. to some degree it's the president content to let them play with this. they write, after four-plus years of em bittered partisan combat, he views his gop bargaining partners with more than a little contempt. the best way to deal with the capitol is throw rocks at it, then send vice president biden in to clean up the glass. the wisdom of vice president biden and glass, setting that aside, it would appear the president would say, fine, obstruct, say what you want about my nominees, they are going to get approved. >> he's got to do that. that's the sort of position he's in. but i think it's had a long-term effect. particularly on the issue of judicial nominations, the president is way behind previous presidents in the recent memory in a way tha
of don't ask don't tell. >> first of all, i haven't opposed senator hagel, but i have said senator hagel has some important questions to answer, and yes, i would want before i took a position in support of senator hagel i would want to know that what he said then doesn't reflect his views now in a heartfelt way, that he is determined to fully integrate these new policies in the military, so that is important to me, but i won't have a vote in the confirmation and what ultimately he'll have to persuade are people like senator schumer on iran and the other members of the senate on both issues and that's the challenge that he'll face, but certainly, if i were sitting during that confirmation hearing or if i'm asked to lend my support as a house member, those are the questions that i'm going to want answered. >> you bring up a great point about chuck schumer and whether or not he's going to be getting a ringing endorsement, and that is chuck haguel and in "the wall street journal," he is loyal to his party to oppose mr. hagel and he is one strong supporter of constituents and he has so far de
the conscience of the country. >> why do you need an assault weapon? you know 90% of hunters think you don't need an assault weapon. >> i've also invited the gun owners and the nra to come and make their case as well. >> walmart will, indeed, attend joe biden's task force meetings. >> the president and i are determined to take action. >> assault weapons are the drunk driving in a prohibition debate. >> the governor is prospected to propose a ban. >> i'm convinced we can affect the well being of millions of americans. >> there's more holes in these laws than a piece of swiss cheese. >> every once in awhile something wakens the conscience of a country. ♪ >>> with an end of month deadline fast approaching, this week could mark a pivotal moment in the effort to curb gun violence in america. today vice president joe biden began a series of meetings hosting victims, groups, and gun safety organizations at the white house. referring to the massacre of innocent children in newtown, connecticut, the vice president said this is now a moral issue. >> seeing those and learning of those young children not o

on the fiscal cliff vote to vote with nancy pelosi and move us forward? i don't know that he can. but it is significant when you've got boehner and you've got mitch mcconnell and even newt gingrich saying the debt ceiling is a loser. because it is. it's a loser for the economy and for them politically. >> because the point is you wrote yourself, the gop can't be trusted on the safety net in sa lon.com. let me read your words to jared and get his reaction. you need a partner to negotiate smart changes and today's republicans aren't trying to fix the two programs. many are trying to kill it, turn medicare into voucher care and privatize social security. >> you know, the republicans have two goals when it comes to fiscal policy. one is to insulate their wealthy donor class from any tax increases and the other is to cut away at the functions of government that protect economically vulnerable people. particularly the social insurance programs. and one of the things they've done and it's been quite machiavellian is to create crises where none exist in order to convince people that the
